Fussy Feeders Intensive Therapy Program

The Lively Eaters Fussy Feeders therapy program is an intensive, individualised and holistic approach to mealtime behaviours, expectations, family dynamics and factors which are impacting on a child’s ability to progress with their feeding.  Each program is developed individually and specifically for your child and your family as we respect that your family unit is unique and feeding therapy can not be a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

The therapists involved in the intensives are highly skilled at observing, interpreting and understanding how a child responds to food and mealtimes, how the family respond to these behaviours and how together this impacts on the mealtime dynamic. Through our intensive residential program these challenges are addressed with the family, without the everyday pressures of school, appointments, work and all other factors which make mealtimes more challenging.

Our Fussy Feeders program operates either from The Memorial Hospital, at the child’s home (local families) or rented accommodation in Adelaide (interstate families). Our highly experienced Paediatrician, Dietitians, Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Parent/Child therapist support your family throughout the week long program.

Children must attend for an initial assessment (either via Skype or in clinic) before consideration into this program will be made. Typically children whose feeding skills have ‘plateaued’ or for whom there are many influential environmental factors, benefit greatly from this intensive and highly supported approach.
